Understanding Neighborhood Change
12:00-1:00 pm, Thursday, March 23, 2017
Why do some neighborhoods become “hot,” some stay much the same, and others decline? Factors such as location, housing stock, schools, community organizations and more can affect a neighborhood’s trajectory. Understanding why the same activities seem to make a difference in one area, and little or no difference – or even have a negative impact -- in another is critical to developing an effective revitalization strategy. Alan Mallach, a senior fellow with the Center for Community Progress, will discuss his research on what makes neighborhoods change, and how local practitioners can use that information to better understand what’s happening in their communities – and respond accordingly.
Instructor: Alan Mallach, Senior Fellow, Center for Community Progress
